What to do: steps you can take
Connect with the institution or caregiver to assess the needs. Then, decide if your church, or organization, is positioned to match any of its requests. Institutions typically have a manager or director of community life and/or a social worker with whom you can work -- this may be a good place to begin your inquiry.
Plugging in to the campaign
Use the images in the toolkit to promote your work if you can. But most importantly, when you deliver “the goods,” please take a photo on your phone, and immediately post to your social media page using the hashtag -- #SeniorCareGiving -- and tag us on Instagram @beth_rapha and tag our Facebook page.
Let’s be a light in this dark world by letting them know our seniors are not dead to us: “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread” (Psalm 37:25, KJV).
